Rialto Film Club


If there's one film that actually deserves to be compared to
Trainspotting, it's this brash, flashy tale of five friends on a
weekend out in Cardiff. Writer/director Justin Kerrigan's sensational
debut has provided UK cinema with its next step forward.
A romantic counter-culture comedy, it's a hectic rush from the
opening, where Jip (The Lakes' John Simm) introduces his mates to the
viewer. Jip's sexually insecure, Lulu's a club babe, Moff deals
(despite living with his policeman dad), Koop peddles hardcore hip
hop and obsesses about his girlfriend, Nina. The five spend their
weeks in mundane jobs, waiting for real life to begin on Friday
night. Along the way, the characters pull us into the party by
directly addressing the camera and haul us into their minds with
dazzling daydream sequences. The soundtrack's outstanding and
features Fatboy Slim and Orbital.

Screening at the Rialto Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington, Christchurch
and Dunedin (in UK Film Series).

We have six copies of the critically acclaimed novel Snow Falling on
Cedars by David Guterson, upon which the film is based, and six
double passes to the film to give away. All you have to do visit the
